The moment we knew we were pregnant with Charlotte, I officially embraced the divine calling of motherhood. Ever since doctor's told me at the age of 14 (while undergoing chemotherapy) how my chances of becoming pregnant would decrease drastically as I entered my 30s, I always had that inner prayer request about becoming a mother.

As we heard God say, "Try again," in the beginning of 2019, I had some specific requirements that I told God. I did NOT want to go to anymore special appointments or do any special tests. I was NOT taking any more fertility medicines. I just wanted to make the process as peaceful as possible! That is when I began doing more research. (click 'Read More' to continue...)
I am grateful for another year to recognize Mother's Day. I do not always feel fullness of joy since Charlotte's stillbirth in 2013. However, this year I am joyful! Not because we have Jr who is 16 months but because I have gained a closer relationship with God over the last few years! So, today, I wanted to just do some "Latonia" stuff! Lol!

When we found our infertility specialist to conceive Charlotte, it was truly God! We honestly did not know what to expect but once we had the first visit, we were convinced God was with us!

As I sat in my Christian therapist's office, I was once again discussing the struggles of trying to conceive. By the time I came to talking about my husband and all that I felt about him, I found myself saying, "I'm tired."
Suddenly, I paused and had these "TV sitcom" flashbacks -- moments where I was frustrated while talking to my husband, but all my husband could say was, "I'm tired." As I sat there in that office, I finally understood what my husband was saying. And I felt so overwhelmed with emotions, I just started crying right there in her office. All this time when I thought my husband and I was not communicating or on the same page, the truth was we were both TIRED! (click 'Read More' to continue...)
I desire to help encourage and support women during their time of trying to conceive and if they experience the tragedy of stillbirth. When I experienced stillbirth, the best advice I received: Be Human. I hope to help Christian women recognize the importance of being human in order to process our emotions. When we admit we are weak, God is able to be faithful and be God. If we be human, then God can be God.
